Details

Les Enfants Sauvage Rouge has a deeply coloured hue and is deeply scented with wild herbs, floral notes and ripe berry fruits. The palate is surprisingly elegant with a delicacy that allows all the flavours and textures to come into their own. The hot sun of the region can often produce heavy wines with overmature fruit and in the worst cases oxidative aromas. Enfants Sauvages is atypical in its delicious freshness and vitality. The pungent aromas of local garrigue and sun soaked scrub leap from every glass, a sheer delight.

Les Enfants Sauvages came about rather by accident after Carolin and Nikolaus' search for a place in the sun resulted in them falling in love with this property with 8 hectares of vines near Fitou. A far cry from their life in Germany where Nikolaus worked in his family's leather business. Carolin converted from architecture to take a course in Oenology and Enfants Sauvages was born. Their vines grow on limestone-rich soil, just 5km from the Mediterranean sea, surrounded by a rich mix of olive, almond and fig trees, as well as garrigue vegetation such as thyme and rosemary, which keeps the soil alive and healthy. No chemicals are used here, only herbal remedies. Most of the viticulture is done by hand - the only modern equipment used in the process is at the winemaking stage itself, but only as a means of encouraging natural processes to occur.
